    Has anyone used SuperDuper! to back up both partitions of their hard drives? I've been reading about this for almost 2 weeks and I haven't gotten a straight answer. I have a new internal hard drive for my MBP that I would like to install asap. I'm using VM fusion 3 with XP to run SolidWorks 2010 and Algor FEMpro. I have SW disks, but I can only use Algor through a vpn client to our school's server. it would be a huge hassel to get this reinstalled, but not impossible i suppose.

    if it is not possible to duplicate osx with a bootcamp partition, does anyone have any tips for possible just copying crucial files from the xp side to the osx side?

    thanks for the help.

    No, you cannot clone both partitions at the same time

    You can, however, use Winclone to clone the Boot Camp partition

    i'm assuming would i back up the windows partition first, then osx (two different external drives if i borrow my friends), then after the hard drive install i would install osx then xp?
